Kanye West is having a hard time moving on from ex-wife Kim Kardashian 

Kanye West made sure to mention his ex-wife Kim Kardashian during his surprise performance at the 2022 BET Awards. 

The Donda rapper presented Sean 'Diddy' Combs with the Lifetime Achievement Award and as he thanked Diddy he dropped Kim's name, noting that he still believes she is his wife. 

"I go to him for advice to this day. He inspires so many of my choices, so many of my life choices - my wife's choices - thanks for that, Puff."

He also spoke about his split with the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star admitting that he was wanting to be out of the public eye but had to make an appearance for Diddy. 

"I just want to declare myself legally dead for a year," he said. 

"I said, 'I just want to be off the grid,' and Puff is pretty persistent, but I had to think, bro, it's like, people get amnesia - as I should never have Puff have to ever call more than one time."

"Any of us in this room if Puff ever need us, we need to jump and be there. This man has been through [and] survived a lot of stuff and broke down a lot of doors so we can be standing ... he broke down so many doors of classism, taste, swag. Puff, if I never told you, I love you, you're my brother," the rapper added.
